AI data platform Vast Data has unveiled an AI architecture for data centers,built in partnership with Nvidia. The data platform claims that the new system will deliver improved performance and quality of service, as well as enhanced zero-trust security.

Jeff Denworth, co-founder at Vast Data, said: “This new architecture is the perfect showcase to express the parallelism of the Vast Data Platform. With Nvidia BlueField-3 DPUs, we can now realize the full potential of our vision for disaggregated data centers that we’ve been working toward since the company was founded.”

Peter Salanki, vice president of engineering at CoreWeave, said, “We’re seamlessly integrating Vast’s advanced software directly into our GPU clusters. Leveraging Nvidia BlueField DPUs, we’ve been at the forefront of creating sophisticated, software-defined data center abstractions. Now, by natively incorporating storage and database services onto BlueField, we’re not just streamlining our infrastructure but we are also elevating the user experience for our customers by removing bottlenecks in the AI data computing pipeline.”
